A County of Neighbors.

Rockville, MD – September 3, 2019 - MCAEL, City of Gaithersburg, City of Rockville, Community Reach of Montgomery County, English Now, Gilchrist Immigrant Resource Center, Hoppe Art,  Identity Inc., Impact Silver Spring, Interfaith Works, Montgomery College, Nonprofit Montgomery, Office of Councilmember Gabe Albornoz, Takoma Park Mobilization group, Takoma Radio, Red Bandana Bakery, Washington Center for International Education and other community stakeholders are adopting and opening doors for Welcoming Week September 13-22, 2019. 

Organizations and groups are invited to adopt a door and describe how they work to open doors to their neighbors. With support from Community Forklift doors are being distributed to Montgomery County organizations to show how residents from all backgrounds are being welcomed in their community. The theme of the project is A County of Neighbors and is being coordinated as part of Welcoming Week. 

Welcoming Week is an initiative to build strong connections across communities and affirm the benefits of welcoming everyone. Welcoming America is leading a movement of inclusive communities becoming more prosperous by making everyone who lives there know they belong.
  
The doors will be on display throughout the county September 13-22, 2019.
 

A door leads people into homes, businesses, communities and opportunities. In Montgomery County we welcome people and build bridges among neighbors, and we open doors.
